Magnolia's Christmas Advent Calender 2011 - Day 3....

Hello,

Welcome to Day 3 of Magnolia's Christmas Advent Calender!

Magnolia are giving away a special prize each day in December and the Magnolia Design Team are taking it in turns to host a day!
You can find out which team member is hosting for a day by going to the Magnolia Inspiration Blog  here and you can see what stunning creations they have made for you.

Today it is my pleasure to host this special Christmas Event!


Here is what I have made. A Christmas Easel card.


I have coloured sweet Tilda holding a wreath with distress inks.
I have stamped my image onto 300gsm watercolour paper.
The stickles I have added are star dust and a sakura glitter clear pen.
I have 3d my layers and added feathers and bling between layers.


Here is my card at a funny angle.

I have die cut Magnolia's Mistletoe and Lace Border and added gold stickles to the Mistletoe. The heart border is Martha Stewart. I have also added Magnolia's jewel garland to the base.


Thank you so much for your visit!

To be included in the random org. draw for this special prize, courtesy of Magnolia.
Please leave a comment and I will announce the winner tomorrow!

love
kim x


The Advent Calender Give Away is now closed!
